Atkins picks new head for Danish business

12 Oct 12 Eva Rindom has been appointed as managing director of Atkins’ business in Denmark following the retirement of Palle Beck Thomsen.

She has been leading the company’s Danish rail operations since 2007 and has worked on some of the country’s most important infrastructure projects including the North West line double-track upgrade and the country-wide integration of the European Rail Traffic Management System (ERTMS).

Europe and Asia Pacific CEO Chris Birdsong: “Eva has been a key part of our success thanks to her extensive technical experience and her excellent track record in project delivery and now she has a chance to build on that by taking charge of the Danish business as it moves forward.”

Rindom trained as a civil engineer at the Technical University of Denmark and completed a PhD in mathematical modelling of vehicle dynamics. She started her career in DSB Project Service which later became the part of Rail Net Danmark that Atkins acquired in 2001.

As vice-chairman of the Danish Rail Trade Association, she has helped to ensure the training of the next generation of railway engineers. She is also on the board of the Association of Consulting Engineers (FRI) and a member of its infrastructure committee.

Current Atkins projects in Scandinavia include delivery of the high-speed railway between Copenhagen and Ringsted, the ERTMS upgrade on the Danish railway network, the upgrade of Oslo Central Station in Norway and new bridge structures on the Koege motorway south of Copenhagen. Atkins employs 450 people in five offices in Denmark.
